Lot description
"Skin (20 works)" (1997) by famed Chinese Contemporary artist Zhang Huan is a museum-level series of twenty 'serial self portrait' black and white photographs shot against a black backdrop and super-cropped, in which Zhang performs simple gestures to manipulate the physical look of his own face, such as holding his eyes shut with his two middle fingers, pulling out his tongue, or tugging the skin of his cheek. This formal series is edition 12 of 25, is unframed and in excellent condition. Dimensions for each of the twenty photographs are image size: 15.90 x 20 inches each (40.5 x 50.5 cm.)/ Paper size: 20 x 23.88 inches each (50.5 x 60.7 cm). The artist uses his body as medium here, without paint or canvas to address issues of the universal human condition as well as examination and self-identity.
